Quotes of the day

posted at 8:31 pm on February 16, 2013 by Allahpundit

Whispers has learned that Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas will be the closing speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference this March, an annual political conference that draws more conservatives than any other event in the country.

Last year, former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin won the coveted speaking spot. Tea party favorite Allen West closed the conference in 2011, and conservative commentator Glenn Beck spoke last in 2010…

“In just a few months, Ted Cruz has become a strong, independent conservative voice in the Senate,” ACU Chairman Al Cardenas said in a press release Thursday. “Senator Cruz personifies the theme of this year’s CPAC—America’s Future: The Next Generation of Conservatives.”

***

Cruz’s ambition and no-holds-barred style have made him a hero among conservative activists and raised talk that Cruz – like Florida Senator Marco Rubio, another Hispanic rising star among Republicans – might run for president as soon as 2016.

“He’s a political phenomenon, and he has managed to become a national figure in a very short period of time,” said Steve Munisteri, chairman of the Texas Republican Party. “I have no doubt that a year from now, virtually every Republican activist in the country will know who Ted Cruz is.”…

“In the modern, cable television-talk radio media age, the more outrageous you are, the more attention you get,” [AEI analyst Norm] Ornstein said. “And Cruz is no dummy. He’s a smart, articulate guy. You’ll be seeing and hearing him a lot.”…

Cruz accompanied McConnell on a congressional visit to Israel and Afghanistan last month and won an admirer in the process. McConnell told the National Review Online afterward that Cruz was “ready for prime time on day one, which is pretty unusual for somebody who just got sworn in.”

***

“I love the guy,” said conservative Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), another “no” vote against Kerry who also opposes Hagel. “And he’s got the tenacity to stand for something and not back down. That means he’s my kind of guy.”

“I think he’s going to be a superstar,” said Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a fellow Cuban-American and another rising star on the right. “You’re already starting to see some of that. He’s just smart as a whip.”

Cruz declined a request for an interview, citing his lost voice after suffering from a cold. But in response to written questions, Cruz was unapologetic.

“I made promises to the people of Texas that I would come to Washington to shake up the status quo, to fight for conservative principles and to lead a concerted and meaningful effort to end the unsustainable spending, deficits and debt that have been propagated, unfortunately, by members of both parties,” Cruz said.

***

“I think he’s got unlimited potential,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Manu Raju of Politico. “But the one thing I will say to any new senator — you’re going to be respected if you can throw a punch but you also have to prove you can do a deal.”

Sure, the people of Texas sent Cruz to Washington to shake things up. But once here, the need to govern (read, putting what’s right for the nation ahead of what’s right for one’s image back home) ought to trump all other considerations. Great senators are the ones whose influence reaches far beyond their home states because they (usually) put country above party, ideology and politics when it is needed most. Looks like it’s going to take a while for Cruz to learn this, assuming that’s possible.

***

Cruz has taken the wear-their-scorn-as-a-badge-of-honor approach with his liberal critics. As he told Glenn Beck last month, “I view all of that as a sign that maybe we’re doing something right.”

Behind the scenes, Cruz has rankled even Republican colleagues, who think he lectures too much at private party sessions — “pontificates” is one word used — and listens too little, especially for a newbie.

One Republican senator described Cruz to me as “Jim De­Mint without the charm,” referring to the rigidly conservative South Carolina Republican who left the Senate to head the Heritage Foundation — and who was not exactly renowned for being warm and fuzzy. Cruz is said to have a frosty relationship with his state’s senior senator, John Cornyn (R), dating to Cruz’s surprising decision, as Senate candidate, not to endorse his fellow Texan’s bid for party whip…

What reasonable inference is there to draw about this brash new senator? That there’s little he won’t do in pursuit of his prey.

***

He’s an ornery, swaggering piece of work. Just six weeks since his arrival on Capitol Hill, he’s already known for his naysaying, his nit-picking and his itch to upbraid lawmakers who are vastly senior to him, who have sacrificed more than he has and who deserve a measure of respect, or at least an iota of courtesy. Courtesy isn’t Cruz’s métier. Grandstanding and browbeating are…

Note in particular a Republican pollster’s recent interviews with Ohio voters. When the pollster asks them to play word association with “Republican,” the answers indeed include a few descriptions that the profiles of Rubio and Cruz push back against: “rich,” “white.” But the adjectives “rigid” and “polarizing” also come up, along with a lament about an “all-or-nothing” approach. These descriptions fit Cruz like a glove…

Indeed, the challenge for Republicans now — a challenge that, to limited and varying degrees, Rubio and even Eric Cantor are beginning to grasp — is to be seen and to act as a constructive force, as a party that’s for things, that wants to be inclusive and that operates with a generosity of spirit, not an overflow of spite. With his votes and his vitriol, Cruz undermines that. He brings himself plenty of attention. He’ll bring Republicans nothing but grief.

***

“Comity does not mean avoiding the truth,” [Cruz] added. “And it would be wrong to avoid speaking the truth about someone’s record and past policy positions, even if doing so inevitably subjects me to personal criticism from Democrats and the media.”

To the growing core of ardent conservatives in the Senate, Mr. Cruz has offered a jolt of positive energy.

“If you don’t ruffle any feathers, you’re not doing anything right,” said Senator Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky, who garnered similar attention in his opening weeks in the Senate two years ago…

After she raised the specter of McCarthyism, Ms. McCaskill was asked if she had spoken to Mr. Cruz about her concerns.

“I’m not sure it would do any good,” she said. “Do you?”

***

At times, the meeting slipped into an unusually accusatory and bitter back-and-forth, with Republicans like Ted Cruz, a freshman senator from Texas, going as far as to suggest that Mr. Hagel had accepted money from nations that oppose American interests.

Saying that he had serious doubts about the source of payments that Mr. Hagel had accepted for speaking engagements, Mr. Cruz declared, “It is at a minimum relevant to know if that $200,000 that he deposited in his bank account came directly from Saudi Arabia, came directly from North Korea.”

Hopefully Senator Cruz is smart enough to watch his back from McConnell; just the same as Reid and the rest of the Lefties.

So did anybody see the start of the Kansas/Texas basketball game on ESPN? They had extra time so they showed the anthem, the singing of the their alma mater and their Rock Chalk Jayhawk chant. Pretty cool.

Digger Phelps just went on and on about it. How this is what America really is – red, white and blue – the anthem sung by everybody, pride in your country, etc.

Kind of made me smile.

Kay Bailey would still be Senator if she hadn’t tried to throw out Rick Perry. In case you haven’t noticed, Texans don’t replace their Republicans. Even with other Republicans.

One curious thing, how the left tweaked W and Cheney as well, for being in the pockets of the Saudis, if one reads Lacey’s Inside the Kingdom, they certainly don’t think that, but Hagel by contrast is so solicitous of the Saud viewpoint, one half suspects ventriloquist strings or worse,

You know something I have come to enjoy about Sarah? They continuously say she is irrelevant, yet they spend so much time money and effort to destroy her. Same may apply to Cruz before its all over. He poses a serious threat to them. P.S. One of my favorite photoshops done to destroy Sarah. I don’t know about you, but for me it backfired on them. I Love It!!!

Just six weeks since his arrival on Capitol Hill, he’s already known for his naysaying, his nit-picking and his itch to upbraid lawmakers who are vastly senior to him, who have sacrificed more than he has and who deserve a measure of respect, or at least an iota of courtesy.

Hillary will be tough to beat..now is the time. Minorities stick together regardless …they will Not accept one of their own to be media crucified ..if Republicans call the out..scream racism

If any didn’t see this Jan 20th Meet the Press between S. Cruz & Schumer, you need to. Be sure to watch the end, when S. Cruz gets a zinger in. It is great.

Maybe, but it’ll never work. Kids are clever. They do as they please. This is very tame compared to what they would see in a Museum.

Got a 185 on my shooting. Low but still passing.

Not my fault. I didn’t enhance hers. Straight up the way I found em! ; )

LOL..

@Redford Bingo. Thats the way to go. Use prog tactics against themselves. Somehow, the pubs never learn that lesson.

Using a snub nosed out-of-the-box .38 wheelgun.

cozmo on February 16, 2013 at 9:54 PM

Nice! She could do that and win. What a world.

KCB on February 16, 2013 at 9:42 PM

She has already done that, several times. She has a real chance at winning if she runs. Go figure, she ain’t that endowed.

Bmore on February 16, 2013 at 9:43 PM

I like this gal better.

She’s good looking.

And she’s not afraid to get dirty to get her job done.

Spark, a nymph, tears streaming down her lovely face, ran to me in the Glade and said that she’d heard you were ill and that you wouldn’t be cavorting and frolicking with the other nymphs for a few days.

Is this true, Spark? Is our friend and Fire Marshal ill with the flu?

I hereby wish you well and a swift recovery, and order that you should rest, eat well, and get plenty of fluids, so that you may recover and return to your normal duties as soon as possible.:)

Besides, think of the language they see here at HA. To me that is much more harmful and I would never edit the vast majority of it. But hey, it ain’t my site Allah and Ed are free to do as they please. They have the keys and can remove anything that’s posted here if they object to it. How do I know this? Trust me I know. Lol! ; )

Bmore on February 16, 2013 at 9:55 PM

Remember that, Republican establishment, when you’re trashing the Tea Party. We gave you Rubio, Paul,and Cruz.
